SuperWorld virtual real estate lets users buy, sell, and explore over 64 billion virtual plots of land geographically mapped onto Planet Earth. Each plot of land in SuperWorld is a 100m x 100m polygon (about the size of a large city block) that corresponds to real-world space.
Hrish Lotlikar, SuperWorld’s CEO & Co-Founder says, “I am excited to announce our partnership with Outlier Ventures and to work with their team to accelerate our vision of leveraging AR/VR, AI, and distributed ledger technologies to build a better world. We share a mutual belief in the open metaverse thesis and I am looking forward to working with their world-class portfolio of companies.”
